CFS: 2013 Sports Management Association of Australia and New Zealand (SMAANZ) Annual Conference

SMAANZ 2013 - 20-22 November 2013
University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand

The 2013 Sports Management Association of Australia and New Zealand (SMAANZ) annual conference will take place from 20‐22 November 2013 in Dunedin, New Zealand. In order to democratise the conference and to develop synergises across presentations the conference organising committee invites proposals from those who are interested in convening and chairing a themed session/s at the conference. This call invites session proposal which should include:
1. Title for the proposed session (please submit separate proposals if considering more than one session)
2. Session convenor/s(name, affiliation and contact details)
3. Description of the theme of the session and its rationale (maximum 350 words).
A maximum of two sessions will be available to each theme and each session should consist of four papers. The responsibilities of themed session/s conveners include populating their session/s through a call for abstracts, ensuring the quality of submitted abstracts and forwarding completed session details to the conference organising committee. Proposals should be forwarded to Diana Evans (diana.evans@otago.ac.nz) by Friday 14 June 2013. Acceptance of sessions will be confirmed by the Friday 12 July 2013.
The conference organising committee wants to encourage a diversity of session themes, which may relate directly or indirectly to the broad SMAANZ research interests (listed at the end of this call). Alongside the themed sessions the conference organising committee will be making a general call for abstracts for papers to ensure everyone who wishes to attend SMAANZ 2013 and contribute to the conference programme has the
opportunity to do so and is incorporated in the conference in a way that maximises the benefits to all conference participants. Questions relating to this call for session proposals should be directed to the conference co‐conveners in the first instance:
Dr. Sally Shaw (School of Physical Education):sally.shaw@otago.ac.nz
Prof. James Higham (Department of Tourism): james.higham@otago.ac.nz
